The young people will review the Beatitudes and reflect on their meaning in their lives.
The young people should be able to identify the Beatitudes as the way to serve God's kingdom.
Open to God
Open to others
Please help me
And see the good they
Can bring to life.
Even when I am
Keep me calm
Remember your law of love and
Serve others by bringing peace.
Playing instrumental music during this activity helps create a reflective atmosphere.
Have the young people write their acrostic first on scratch paper and then copy it onto the construction paper.
